André joined KTVU in January of 2018, which was a return to California since leaving Sacramento in 2008.

Born in Kingston, Jamaica, André immigrated with his parents and three sisters to the United States in the 1980s and resided in North Miami Beach where he attended North Miami Beach High School and Florida International University. 

André got his start in television at WSVN in Miami where he worked his way up from news writer to news producer. He left for a similar position at KOVR/KMAX in Sacramento. After nearly two years, he returned to Florida where he became an evening producer at WOFL Fox 35 News in Orlando.

André accepted a position at WFTX FOX 4 in Ft. Myers, Florida where he honed his reporting skills before leaving to report for WTSP Channel 10 News in Tampa. He then went on to become the morning & noon anchor at WVEC 13 News in Norfolk/Virginia Beach, experience that would lead him back to the West Coast to become an anchor/reporter for KTVU.

Since arriving at Channel 2, André has covered a myriad of major stories, the first of which was the shooting on the YouTube Campus in San Bruno. His reporting on the breaking news was carried across the country. He’s also reported from the ground on a number of dangerous and deadly wildfires that have gripped California in recent years, Black Lives Matter protests that erupted from the death of George Floyd to the Golden State Warriors move from Oakland to San Francisco. 

Since making the Bay Area his home, André says he appreciates the Mediterranean climate, which is in stark contrast to the tropical weather where he was raised in South Florida. 

When not at work, you can find André exploring every part of the Bay Area from Healdsburg, to Napa, San Francisco, Oakland or Silicon Valley and giving tours to family and friends visiting from outside the Bay Area.

Oakland program bridges gap between Black community and law enforcement

In the heart of East Oakland, a modest building bearing the sign "Ok Program of Oakland" stands as a beacon of hope. Despite its unassuming appearance, this organization harbors profound intentions – to mend the rift between law enforcement and the Black community.
